It's time to pimp another one of my friend's businesses (I'm pretty sure that I made all of that plural and possessive incorrectly, but I don't care enough to dig out Strunk and White.)

kass_rants' Reconstructing History www.reconstructinghistory.com is a fun store, and she's just a fun person.  Her lovely husband has also known to be moderately entertaining from time to time.

Or do you think I should go with "Charlotte" for my Charlotte?  Maybe I should pick up the pattern and start working on it now, in case she goes to the late-period dark side...
